Connected vehicle technology comes with various environmental and highway safety benefits. However, car dealers need to be tech-savvy, and it’s time consuming to develop a connected car.
Formula 1 teams are pioneering new IoT and data sharing technologies that will soon become features of the consumer's connected car. Through 5G and V2X (vehicle-to-everything), innovations that are powering modern motorsports are finding their way from the racetrack to the roadway.
Today, one only has to step out onto a New York street or fly over LA’s tangled highways to see the problems: auto-clogged roads, low-lying vehicle-fume smog, and barely-moving lines of single drivers sitting in multi-passenger cars. Some (mistakenly) cast luxurious self-driving cars as a means to turn the frustrations of a daily commute into a valuable period of relaxation or productivity. In this piece, I explain why that strategy won’t just be ineffective and worsen our commutes, but will also ultimately compel consumers to embrace the very transport philosophy that made us traffic-beleaguered in the first place. I also make a case for why using self-driving cars as public transport can be used as a means to eradicate driving dependence in the long term.
IoT continues to march into our roads and cities, and the change is gaining momentum as the number of cars connected to the internet increases. Thankfully, there are numerous befits to driving a connected car.
The term Internet of Things is increasingly being used to define devices that specifically communicate with the local network, the internet, and each other, independent of human action. IoT is wearable and portable, creating a connected world by transforming surrounding physical objects into an ecosystem of information that rapidly changes the way humans live.
Connected cars are extremely complex in terms of testing and QA, yet these points cannot be overlooked. The article focuses on the mechanisms of data exchange in connected vehicle technology and lines up types of testing applicable to connected cars, such as on-road, virtual environment and in-laboratory testing. Moreover, various systems of connected vehicles are also separate subjects of testing, so QA engineers use performance, interoperability, and other types of testing.
Building connected car services can be a challenge due to the unreliable nature of the cellular network and the requirement for bi-directional communication. MQTT's publish/subscribe protocol is well designed to address these challenges and is well suited for moving data between the car and cloud platform.
Many have heard the term "smart home" by now, but fewer are aware of how IoT can improve urban life.
What is telematics? As cars become more connected over time, we need effective ways of integrating telecoms and informatics systems.
Because connected and autonomous vehicles can move at high speeds, they're in their own class when it comes to the risk of being hacked. They require their own class of protections.
